My mother has varicose viens which means that I am prone to them too! Pregnant ladies are especially vulnerable to getting them so my midwife suggest I wear compression tights. I ran across a company called Preggers and I am totally impressed. They have the largest selection of maternity support hosiery and compression products that I have been able to find! I am talking 5 different styles of products in lots of different colors!
"What does gradient compression hosiery do?
Support Hose or graduated compression has often been recommended for use during pregnancy to help energize tired, achy legs and to help reduce and prevent swelling. True gradient compression hosiery delivers a controlled amount of pressure greatest at the ankle and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking promoting better blood flow to help energize tired legs and feet, improve circulation, and assist in the prevention of swelling. They are also ideal for individuals required to sit or stand for long periods of time.
What is unique about Preggers by Therafirm™ compression products?
Finally, maternity compression products where you, expecting moms, are being heard. No more stigma of the old, “yucky” compression that is available in only a few styles, off-trend colors, is uncomfortable, hard to get on, and expensive. We believe you can wear compression and get the benefits it provides and still be fashionable. We want to you to feel AND look great!"
I was lucky enough to get to try out two of their products. I tried the Maternity Trouser Socks 10-15mmHg* Gradient Compression in black diamond. I absolutely love these and want more of them. They are cute and easy to put on and give your legs a good lift. They are easy to wear everyday and no one can even tell. I also tried Maternity Pantyhose 10-15mmHg* Gradient Compression in Sand color. Once again I was truly impressed as they are very well designed. My favorite part about the Preggers compression hose is that there is no band at the top so it doesn't squeeze my belly. The unique top with built-in tummy support panel provides a sense of support for active mommas and can be worn folded under belly or unfolded to cover belly. I really can't tell you enough how great the smooth seams are for not digging into your tummy or showing under clothes. This may sound kind of silly but I also love the packaging! It is so cute and it made them feel like little presents rather than a medical prescription. Preggers gets a huge thumbs up for me!
